    Pros

    Junior or immediate supervisors are understanding, caring, and act as a shield between you and senior management.

    Cons

    Strict executive management always looking for results no matter the priority or resource availability. Jumping to conclusions using draft data is common.

    I worked at Wyeth full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues; most people of similar level were nice and helpful. Focus on novel pursuit of interesting science. Unclear what could have been.

    Cons

    Pfizer merger was a huge drain; too many good people were displaced. Too much in fighting and not enough focus on science that could deliver - not enough asking the right questions.

    Pros

    Although very large, the company found a way to foster cooperative behavior. Good training. Smart people. Organized and professional.

    Cons

    Low-growth at the time meant that there was less opportunity to progress in career. At times, one might wish for more flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was far too far down the hierarchy to advise management. I wish them all the best in their future work.

    I worked at Wyeth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was true role clarity in my positions at Wyeth, but there were also many opportunities to join special projects, grow skills and network. Their training programs were fantastic and there was a pleasant work atmosphere. Summer hours were a terrific bonus.

    Cons

    Inconsistent ability to get things done. In some departments, sign-off could be obtained quickly and process implemented successfully. In other areas, there was a lot of bureaucracy and political maneuvering.
